Build a magical world in Dragon City! Gain hundreds of dragons, breed them and make them level up in order to become a Dragon Master! DRAGON CITY is a simulation game where you raise cartoon dragons. First, you pick a habitat, and then you hatch, feed, and raise a dragon to adulthood. Once it’s an adult, your dragon can fight or breed with other adults to create new baby dragons for your city.
This game will attract little kids but isn’t meant for them. The dragons are cute, and it’s rewarding to be able to earn experience points for so many things, from feeding your dragon for the first time to clearing brush. You can also connect through Game Center, Facebook, or Google Play to visit your friends’ dragon cities to give or sell resources. Completing activities can earn you in-app currency to buy things, and there also are abundant in-app purchases that allow you to level up even faster.
The player begins with an island and an allocation of gold, gems and dragon food. A tutorial shows the player how to set up a dragon terrain, add buildings, grow food, breed and hatch dragons, battle with their dragons, remove trees and rocks and more. Some activities have long waiting periods. In the tutorial, players are encouraged to speed up these processes using gems. Gold can be used to purchase terrains and buildings, dragon eggs and food to grow. Gold is produced by the dragons, with different types of dragons producing it at different rates. Dragons must be fed to increase their level, which is useful in combat. Gems can be used to speed up the game activities, like breeding and hatching.
Players can send their dragons into combat with the dragons of other players. The dragons do not contact each other – the battle consists of using moves which vary according to the type of dragon and level, such as a punch or flaming arrows. These moves score points and weaken the opposing dragon. There are many levels to progress through, each adding new items which can be purchased or accessed.
